Call for CREW Careers Volunteers!

February 6, 2020

CREW Chicago’s CREW Careers Program Committee is excited to be kicking off the 2020 program! 


About CREW Careers:
Every year CREW Chicago members take part in a non-profit event called CREW Careers. The CREW Careers program introduces teenage girls to careers in the CRE industry. For the past several years, we have teamed up with The Off the Street Club in the West Garfield Park neighborhood - they provide us with our "class" of approximately 25-30 girls, from 7th grade to high school seniors. Many of the girls repeat the program every year - it's a big favorite for them. We try to make the program as interactive and as relevant to the girls as possible while, at the same time, giving them an idea of several different real estate careers.

How can you help?
As part of the event, we provide the group of girls with t-shirts, snacks and a small party for their efforts on the final day as well as try to provide them with goodie bags full of donated necessities or school supplies they might not have otherwise. We are looking for companies to help with donations (monetary is always welcome) to so we can help provide them these items. 

•    Cash donations  (will be used towards food & venue): Contact Linsey Neyt at linsey.neyt@brookfieldpropertiesretail.com or 312-415-2862.   Donations must be received by Friday February 21st, 2020

•    Goodie bag donations of 30 items (i.e. company logo items such as pencils, pens, school supplies, fun accessories, notepads, water bottles, etc.): Contact Linsey Neyt at linsey.neyt@brookfieldpropertiesretail.com or 312-415-2862.   

Items need to be dropped off at Lesley Netzer’s office by Friday February 21st, 2020
